Plainspotting Live
« on: July 25, 2019, 08:31:35 PM »

Anyone seen it over the last few days?
It's embarrassing, condescending, ultra-politically correct, dumbed down to the level of a 5 year old.    It's so amateurish and hap-hazard.    Who decided to make this garbage?

It's the BBC's summer schedules, guys. Where have you been?? It's there to make you grateful when Strictly and Dr Who return. Meanwhile it's yet another night of 'Dave' repeats for us.....

Donít get me started Dave!


Iím appalled at the rubbish they are producing at the moment- I used to enjoy Dr Who but itís too PC now, itís got one season left to improve or thatís it!


I would have thought that they would have got someone who was actually interested in aircraft to present it like James May but when you get one of the presenters saying that a Lysander was a Spitfire until corrected by an expert! Well that just shows how poor it really is... :((

They hit the PC-jackpot - crumbly old white guy, black guy, guy in a wheelchair, female 'expert' and a transgender pilot.    Shame they forgot about any proper content.     Definitely shows where their priorities are.

Sounds about what might be expected based on the trainspotting series last year.

Caught it last night. Watched it only for the cringe factor and the WTF factor going on when they had the 4 characters together.  I want a proportional refund of my licence fee for spending 30 mins watching this utter rubbish!!!! There should be aircraft spotters out there reeling and spitting it's been presentd so badly.






I admire Peter Snow. Really quite obvious last night he didn't realise what he signed up to.  Couldn't hide it on his face but he kept going and took the money.

Nullabor Plain   No trees  All the planes fly over it at 35000 feet  %%
Flat and boring, apparently just like the program

Sounds like bliss.  I live in the highlands of scotland, I can hear an aircraft clear as day on the apron 10k away if the wind is right.
The P.A.F. were flying round my village where I stay in France last month, round and round, round and round, round and round again, round and round again to be sure, low level high speed but no smoke, round once last time to rattle the windows again!  Ironically, when it came to bastille day -not a peep from them!
